    A nice afternoon and evening here, a bit breezy but mostly sunny and 19C after a high of 20.4C (not far from average). Certainly doesn't feel autumnal here - and the sun still feels very strong. Negligible rain this morning (less than 0.5mm).

    Now, if every day was like this, I wouldn't complain at all!

    Felt lovely today with the cool breeze and pleasant temperature. More like May than what we have seen.

    Oh and for what it's worth, this will be added to the guidelines shortly..  

    Feels so Autumnal today, loving the change from June and July.

    The sad thing is many people don't appreciate that people really struggle in this, from young babies to elderly to asthmatic. Meanwhile they're sitting there going yay it could be 40oC. I'm same as yo

    For the first time in ages I’m cold enough to need a jumper. Considering putting the fire on as my front room is a bit chilly. What’s the betting September warms up again?

    Certainly need a jacket now - that will always be my biggest issue even with average summer days, it cools down too quickly in the evening. Great evening for a run though.

    Just about cool enough for jeans for me today. Windows still wide open at home, making the most of fresh air.

    Pressure still looks like being relatively high in the south for much of the second half of August, but crucially that little bit further south than we saw in the N-S split pattern in the Augusts of 1989 and 1998.  I had been envisaging a sunny August in the south and a cloudier one in the north, but the current model outputs are suggesting that southern areas will often be quite cloudy as well with a fair amount of moisture around the northern flank of the ridging Azores high.

    Much of the country is still on target for an exceptionally warm summer, possibly record breakingly so, but sunshine totals for the summer quarter, after the head start we had in June and July, look like falling a fair way behind 1976, 1989 and 1995.  Shame really, I had been hoping that this summer would end up ranking up there with those three.  The three month period May-July 2018 was the sunniest on record in many parts of the country though, beating 1989.

    And surprisingly, I wore shorts when I got home.. but I did spend most of the evening cutting some of my hedges down in height, certainly works up a sweat.

    I've worn jeans a number of times this summer though, even in July.

    More so in the West. July 2018 although sunny here was certainly not as sunny as July 2006. It seemed rather cloudy for such a warm, settled month, and after mid month we had many days with convective infill (the scourge of summer days). Indeed, after mid month there were no full sunshine days at all here, and just a few days that could be described as mostly sunny (although it remained very warm). The only major difference here between the second half of July and the first half of August here is that the first half of August has just been cooler (but still comfortably warmer than average).

    And even if you hate heat, surely getting a CET record or sunshine record out of this summer would make it more worthwhile. I hated December 2015 but getting the warmest ever December by a huge margin was very interesting and made that dreadful month a bit more bearable.

    This August feels more like a warmish September. Hot to start then autumn since.

    August really has been quite a poor month for most in the past 11 years. For the north at least given the outlook it once again will go down as lacklustre and very cloudy, and quite likely a wet one - lots more rain to come, I just knew the minute United Utilities announced a hosepipe ban the heavens would open - and yes they have..

    I believe the average August temperature for 2000-2017 has actually gone down compared to 1981-2010. However, I assume it would only take one hot August to reverse that. Most June's and July's have been lackluster in recent years too but have been made up for by 1 or 2 hot months.

    I also still maintain that no August in recent years has been as awful as June or July 2012, not even August 2014.

    The bad August thing of the past 13 years is overstated a little. We have a pretty average number of cold Augusts, what has been missing are the warm ones which have instead stayed closer to average. Equally though in the 91-04 period we saw the other side of that with 4 warm Augusts (actually all in a 9 year period) and two cold ones at the start of that period.

    As nice as it is to have a cooler/average spell of high teens to low 20s weather, after 3 months of heat, I’ve now had to wear a light jacket for the first time. 

    This to me is a usual indication of autumn on the way. We can still get a hot spell between now and mid September, but the cooler theme is lingering just around the corner. Even if we do get a mild winter, there will be some chilly days to come.

    Summer 18 has been one of the best, at least since 2013, but it’s now starting to fade.

    Just been out, on this lovely morning, and have augmented my extremely slow-growing suntan...Tanned skin = burnt skin? Nonsense!

    We've evolved a white skin for a very simple reason: at our high latitudes, and without what we can now get from Tesco, our forbears simply couldn't afford to maintain a black one!:good:

    A cool day so far, low of 10 and up to around 17 degrees and cloudy. Not bad, it's warming up a bit tomorrow as well but should remain cloudy.
